What ex­cites you most about this re­gion right now?

Marl­bor­ough’s cli­mate and dif­fer­ent sub­re­gions al­low us to pro­duce ex­pres­sive, fruit-for­ward styled wines across sev­eral va­ri­eties. We are lucky to have world-class pinot noir and chardon­nay vineyards that are lo­cated at the base of the Wither Hills. Whether it’s our fa­mous sau­vi­gnon blanc or an­other va­ri­ety, our ob­jec­tive re­mains the same – to pro­duce the beauty of Marl­bor­ough in a glass.

What should we make time for at your win­ery?

Wither Hills is one of Marl­bor­ough’s most pop­u­lar cel­lar doors and restau­rant venues. We of­fer lunch, tours and tast­ings, and you can even have a chance to blend your own pinot noir. It is a great place to soak up the sun­shine and take in a view that is quintessen­tially Marl­bor­ough on a bean­bag in the grass court­yard with a glass of sauvin­gon blanc.
